this big impact on these shares here at the nasdaq. >> jon fortt i'm sure is digging into the whys of this. i just walking downstairs here am not sure whether this is a classic case of sort of a fat finger, somebody hit the button on the release with because one of the releases that i'm looking at here has a block in there saying pending larry quote. larry page, of course, the c.o.o. of that company. maybe this release was let go and freed out to the public simply by mistake. that's my speculation, not based on anything authoritative that i have heard. revenues were higher than a year ago at $14.1 billion. that's up about 45%, compared with the third quarter of 2011. but the net income numbers were certainly lower. 2.18 billion compared to 2.73 billion. on an eps basis, it was $6.53 compared with $8.33 in the third quarter of 2011. the non-gap numbers -- 903 compared to 972 in the third quarter of 2011. on both gap and non-gap, clearly a decline in earnings, in profit there and that is reflected in what you see in the stock, halted now at $678.30. sue? >> indeed, ty, we're going to continu
. yesterday not a very good day for apple. tech reporter jon fortt back from the apple event out in san jose. he's here at global headquarters. let's first talk -- jon, welcome. you must have had a long red eye flight. but at any rate, talk about the pricing. was it a surprise that it was as high as it is? >> surprised some people. $325. they want 1ded $1.99. i did a piece saying no way they'd sell this below $300. but i don't think that's necessarily a problem. we'll see. because apple's been beating the other tablets at $199 with a $500 -- $400 ipad already on volume. now they've got a cheaper one, it fills out their lineup. they might just continue to beat them -- >> they can come in at $329 and see how it goes. it may do fine. it is easier than to cut the price back down and it would be to start at $299 and say, wait a minute, let's take it up to $349. we've now had 2, maybe 2 1/2 product announcements under tim cook. i got sense that yesterday's -- the stock market wasn't all that favorable. compare the last couple of product announcements under come with comparable product announcement
by 2%. jon fortt is in silicon valley and he's on the invite list and the big question is a mini ipad coming, jon? >> yeah, that's exactly what i'm expecting. a couple of key questions with this announcement. what other surprises might apple have. and, two, how much should a mini ipad cost. first there have been rumors for a little more than a month that apple is about to update the imac line with new designs and maybe another laptop with a high resolution receitina display. timing makes sense because apple whether be trying to steal thunder from microsoft windows 8 launch. on the ipad mini itself, we're basically expect an 8 $200 and . this has the ability to shake up the market. consider analysts say every five tab lets that sell cannibalize two pc sales. this is apple saying we think we figured out how to sell more tablets and own this market. >> jon fortt, thank you so much. we have a big rally on our hands. the dow at the high of the day. up 124 points. almost a full percent. we are now less than 600 points from a new all-time high. transports confirming that. we're up better
the story as we look at apple trading at $598.40. jon fortt has been in studio with us all week. you think that perhaps the street is misreading this a little bit. things aren't exactly the way they appear. >> i think as people have taken some time to look deeper into the numbers, listen to apple's commentary last night, a few things are standing out. one, the iphone number, really not that bad based on what some people had been expecting. the older iphones continue to sell pretty well. iphone 4s and 4. then you've got the fact that the ipod and ipad refresh really caused apple to have to make a lot of adjustments. if you look at property plant and equipment in apple's report, what they spent on that doubled year over year. you consider -- i mean that's a big expense. apple's story about why margins are coming down, i think some of the apple bulls at least have latched on to that heading into next quarter. plus the fact that apple forecasted $52 billion in sales for the holiday quarter. not all bad. the question is, this ipad mini, how well will it sell. if that looks big, people might sta
with with the deputy managing editor at "wall street journal," and and our jon fortt. welcome to you both. start with the pivot of the company, spencer, to one that sounds more like apple, the idea being services integrated with software, integrated with devices. is it too late for them to do this. >> well, it's not clear if it is too late but it is definitely something they need to do. it is not just microsoft but there is a larger trend in the technology industry right now toward a vertical intergra inte. apple has shown if you combine hardware and software in an elegantly designed device, it can create a great customer experience. now others were making it more of an official strategy that, question, the future is in combining services and hardware. steve ballmer said the future of the company, yes, in some cases they'll be making actual physical hardware, not just the xbox but tablets and maybe even smartphones. >> to that point, jon fortt, the surface is the tablet on which i guess they have high hopes. when is it out and what are the possibilities here? it's a crowded marketplace. >> tyler
this showdown very closely with china. tech correspondent jon fortt in silicon valley looking at which companies stand to win and lose in all this. >> bob, the biggest, most obvious winner here is cisco because that's huawei's arch enemy in the networking space. cisco has accused them of stealing its source code and they've called out huawei as cisco's largest challenger. buyers and sellers themselves aren't an immediate win. public sector purchasing has been suffering and huawei didn't have a lot of share in the u.s. to begin with. but companies that do business with the government might back away from considering huawei. they're the number two telecom maker in the world so this might help cisco gain some share in other markets where governments could be influenced by the u.s. move. could also help erickson, the number one telecom commitment supplier. juniper has set up demo labs to try to push the brand. the key is what happens in europe. u.s. is just 4% of huawei's business. europe is more like 14%. that's where u.s. companies will look to gain an advantage. >> jon, china is also key to anoth

daily show's" jon stewart and he says the four deaths were "not optimal." not optimal. you heard that right. that, mr. president, is a cold and heartless statement. it is unbecoming for the commander in chief. we're going to give you the full story up next on "kudlow." later on, romney eviscerates obamanomics in this week's past debate, but all anyone talks about is big bird and binders for women. we are going to debate america's economic future with obama's former top economic adviser austan goolsbee. and don't forget, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. it looks like mitt romney is on that path. we'll see if he stays there. >> of course we're down to the final months of the president's term. as presidents -- [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] as president obama surveys the waldorf banquet room with everyone in white tie and finery, you have to wonder what he's thinking. so little time. so much to redistribute. mike rowe here at a ford tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. wh
released today. there is a lot riding on this for the company and for the ceo, steve ballmer. jon fortt sat down with him first on cnbc. joins us in the studio with a new toy, the surface tablet. tell us about mr. ballmer first. >> we'll play with this a bit after, tyler. steve and i covered a lot. steve ballmer. one of the things we talked about was the competition. microsoft's flat chip new windows device, surface tablet, sells for $499. amazon and barnes & noble are all selling tablets for around $200. none of them is making any money on the hardware, all hoping to make it up later through the sales of books, music, movies, other merchandise. i asked him what he thinks of the zero margin hardware game. listen. >> it is anybody's game. don't think even amazon can play that game for the long term. everybody wants to make some money. >> that's why the surface is $499. he doesn't think the kindle fire's model has much of a future. tablets are an incredibly important part of the windows 8 story though. here's why. this os works with a mouse and keyboard but it is really built for touch. if yo

years ago. jon fortt joins us live with more on what is clearly an innovative company, jon. over to you. >> thank you, simon. here with aaron levy, ceo of box. you did announcements out there. we have seen oracle sales force, others, coming out talking about owning the cloud. you have got your own vision, raised $287 million to do it. what did you announce today? >> so, we announced a brand new technology that allows you to take box, thus take your content and information you have in your business and extend it to a whole bunch of other applications you can work from. so, concur, cornerstone, net suite, jive, a punch of public sass and cloud companies, even oracle fusion, crm, take your content anywhere in those applications. >> given their the provocateur now, taken marc benioff's face, sticking your finger in the eye of microsoft. >> no. no. >> partnering with you here, 287 small lot of money, they have got more than that. >> we think as a startup, we have an unfair advantage. we focus on a new kind of business model, a free product that allows people to bring the technology into the
on google and microsoft today after a tough earnings day for that twosome yesterday. before we get to jon fortt to sort it out for us and the downfall of the spiraling, julia boorstin is looking at the achilles heel laid bare in google's earnings report. has anybody figured out mobile? >> it's worth pointing out that despite the fact that the shift in mobile is hurting google's revenue, when it comes to mobile ads, google is making much more money than anyone else. e marketer estimates google will generate $1.4 billion in net mobile ad revenue. that's much more than any of the other rivals. look at that full screen there. google is projected to grow that mobile ad revenue by another $1 billion next year. google is well positioned when it comes to mobile ads because it does 95% of all mobile search. that's a big opportunity. the issue is pricing, because mobile search ads are less valuable. people are less likely to make big purchases, whether it is for an airplane flight or a hotel room, when they're on their smartphones. another good player here in the mobile ad space is pandora. that's
. our tech reporter jon fortt in silicon valley with two very different business models for the tablets. jon? >> tyler, this october 23rd date for apple is interesting for a couple reasons. one, it is two days before apple earnings which will make it interesting for the stock. apple will have to include ipad mini in its fiscal q1 guidance possibly before pre-orders of the device have even started. gross margin guidance will be important with two high-volume laurnl launches under way. i'm told the apple mini will start shipping in november, couple weeks amazon launches the new, improved kindle fire. let's talk business models. of the kindle fire hd unveil, they're not making money on hardware. they make it when people use the device. they said apple's model of getting big margins on hardware puts them at odds with the consumer because they always try to pull you back to upgrade. here's the catch -- amazon also puts ads on its envy level devices because they say they're not a device, they're a service. that's not something you can imagine apple doing. you can kind of ding either company e
are listening. there was a piece today. jon corzine, page 6 points that jon corzine had dinner on saturday night at elmilino where you can get a bowl of pasta for $89. he was there having dinner with with alan grubman, entertainment lawyer and taxi magnate. rick, if you want to know where jon corzine is, and i know a lot in chicago want to know, having dinner at the new restaurant upper east side manhattan on saturday night. >> gary, of course, i believe in freedom, and obviously, he hasn't been charged with anything. he can go spend $1,000 apiece for a strand of spaghetti. i don't care, and i wish most americans could afford a thousand dollar strand of spaghetti. i bet when he closes his eyes at night to go to sleep, i don't think he has happy thoughts. you know, whether the legality catches up with him, whether the politics release him to the legalities, because i think it's all about politics, but in the end, you know what? you and i sleep well at night. i doubt if he does. there's so retribution on that level. >> well said, rick. by the way, let's get a tuesday edition of santelli exchange.
to be a smaller version of the ipad, call it the ipad mini. we go to jon fortt in silicon valley for more on today's main event. >> reporter: right behind me is where the action will take place. we're expecting a mini ipad. apple hasn't said exactly what this is. what would be the big deal over a smaller ipad? this would be the biggest new product announcement in about almost the past three years. not in the sense that it's bigger revenue wise, probably than an iphone but in terms of a new design and a risk apple is taking, a smaller ipad would be part of that. steve jobs said he wasn't in favor of such a thing at seven inches. of course we expect this could be closer to eight inches than seven based on a lot of the buzz out there. we have to wait and see. you could take a look at the products that apple has put out over the past few years as you've seen the stock do this amazing run since the iphone, this would be another product on that line-up so a question, will this be like another mac mini which close less than the mainstream imac but helped to bolster apple's overall product line or the ipo

on "power lunch." jon fortt and brian sullivan will be all over it for us tomorrow all day on cnbc. >>> indeed, ty. another tech giant in the news today is yahoo!. right now down just a fraction at 15.75. it reports earnings after the bell. julia boorstin will get us ahead of the numbers. what can investors expect this time around? >> reporter: well, sue, investors expect marissa myer to lay out her plan to turn the company around and help it transition to a more mobile future. yahoo!'s expected to report earnings per share of 25 cents, up 11% from a year ago on 1% higher revenue. the big question is how display ads, which is yahoo!'s biggest business, at 40% of its revenue are impacted by the shrift to mobile where yahoo! has a relatively small presence. we'll be watching that cost-per-click metric which declined at google. yahoo!'s second biggest business is its search business. that's about one-third of the company's revenue. it will also be in focus. it continues to lose market share with just 12.2% of search in september. we'll see what myer has planned to build yahoo!'s mobil
